“Foot” Diseases Spread to the Federation


The Ministry of Health has reported that “there are increasing cases of Hand-Foot-and-Mouth Disease (HFMD) in the Federation”.

Acting Public Relations Officer for the Ministry of Health, Mrs Loretta “Not the knife one” Bobbit said, “Previously we had an endemic outbreak of Foot in Mouth disease in Basseterre in the vicinity around Church Street. We got that under control mostly in February 2015 although there are two citizens (a male and a female) who have an incurable form of Foot in Mouth disease. This new arrival is not related to that and we wan’t people to be aware that they are different.”
